Profile picture of figurative expressionism artist, Paul-André Hamel (p.a. hamel)

Paul-André Hamel photographs ordinary people in the street and in buildings – often art galleries and museums. He then edits the photos with his iPhone and many different apps. The finished images are simplified to remove most of the detail. This technique leaves the subjects standing out as silhouettes against indistinct backgrounds of basic shapes and colour; often presenting the viewer with only a hint of the person’s original surroundings.
